Typical products of Abruzzo

Typical Products of Abruzzo. Abruzzo is a particular region because it has a large agricultural and pastoral tradition of its mountainous and hilly areas and an abundant variety of fish in the Adriatic Sea.

The olive tree draws the landscape of the whole territory showing the historical importance of this cultivation not only in the food tradition but mainly in the culture and life of people from Abruzzo.

OIL
The pretuziano extravirgin oil DOP from the hills of Teramo is one of the “excellence” of our territory: it has a greenish-yellow colour, a fruity odour and a fruity flavour of medium intensity, slightly bitter and spicy. It is obtained from Leccino, Frantoio and Dritta olives that must be present in the groves without exceeding 75%.

 

THE WINES

The territory of the Colline Teramane, that extends to the north of the region, is located between the altitudes of the Gran Sasso and the Adriatic coast. It is the setting for an amazing show of vineyards treated as wonderful gardens and the stage for the celebration of wines that have recently become famous and appreciated by wine lovers. First the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Colline Teramane.

It is an extraordinary wine, the result of the passion and the professionalism of the local growers who deserve the large recognition that the amateur world and the commercial one attribute to it both in Italy and abroad. Absolutely the first red wine in Abruzzo to achieve this important goal.

Throughout the district of the Colline Teramane, from Controguerra to Colonnella, from Sant’Omero to Ancarno, from Notaresco to Morro d’Oro and Atri, a particular structure of the soil and a favourable climate favourites the production of this wine with distinctive organoleptic sensations and well suited to ageing. It is a deep ruby red colour with slight purple hues, and a distinctive, ethereal, intense aroma; the flavour is dry, full, robust but smooth and velvety; the smell is the one of ripe red fruit and spices. It is a great wine that is a perfect match with grilled red meat, sauces and aged cheeses.
